I am looking for my 3rd Great Grandmother, Sarah BANTA, who married William HART 18 Jan 1818 in Warrick County, Indiana. I found a Warrick County Court record of their divorce in 1825.
A Great Granddaughter of John N. Hart (a son) says that after the divorce William sent Sarah (BANTA) HART back to French Lick, West Baden, Orange Co., Indiana. (this has not been verified and I'm not sure where this is located).
The way I know that Sarah BANTA is the mother of my 2nd Great Grandmother Emeline (HART), is the following biography of Emeline's brother, John N. Hart. It is found on Page 189 of "Goodspeed, Bros. & Co. Publishers 1885 edition History of Warrick, Spencer and Perry Counties, Indiana:
"John N. Hart, the immediate subject of this sketch, was born in July, 1820, and is one of two children - himself and Emaline - born to William and Sarah (BANTA) HART. The mother dying(?), William Hart married Sallie Farmer, who bore him ten children, these seven yet living: David L., Thompson B., Sarah A., Elizabeth, Samuel W., Charles C., and Ellen. John N. Hart was raised by his grandfather until twenty five years of age, receiving a common school education. In March, 1845 he wedded Maria Hart, who died seven months later. September 1, 1850, he married Julia A. Morrison, and by her he is the father of three children: Ivy J., A.E. and George W. (deceased as of 1885). He owns an excellent farm of 240 acres, is one of the leading Republicans of the county, and is a first-class citizen."
No record of Sarah (BANTA) HART dying in Warrick County.
Do you have any record of Sarah (BANTA) HART, born about 1800.
Sure would appreciate any help. Thank you.
